Some thoughts on nothing in particular....

Our ideas are for the most part like bad sixpences and we spend our lives in trying to pass them on to one another.
- Samuel Butler

My sister is currently knitting Tychus from the current issue of Knitty, she's making it out of a coffee coloured yarn with a contrast of cream. It's knitting up really well, I am coveting it muchly.

This is something I am thinking of making, and have been for a while. Where I work a customer brought in this pattern as a request to be made up, so I am hoping I get the chance to see before I make and decide if I do like it that much.
The yarn the customer brought in was called Grignasco Tyrol and was 60% wool, 30% alpaca and 10% acrylic it felt super nice but I hate to think what the price was on it.

People who don't hold DVD's by the edges piss me off, I did the video rental store over this afternoon. I finally got to rent Elecktra and Blade Trinity. I also got Prey For Rock N' Roll, I read a reveiw of this some time ago and never heard any more about it. When I saw it today I decided to grab it and check it out.
It's about an all female rock group and their lives. It sounds good.

As for Matt Hardy, no I'm still in a sulk over that one. I can't believe all these years my fave Hardy Boy was the spineless one. I knew I had bad taste but even so, I think I need a dose of Baywatch: Hawaii Reunion.

Until next time,
A bona fide red head and damn proud of it.

The cheapest Grignasco that I have seen was about $8.50 a ball so that's not cheap and it feels really good to touch.

Dear Suzi, I lurve the hot water bottle cover !! I neeeeeed one. I am frightened of electric blankets and always have green hot water bottles. This can be the next thing I knit!!!
I have found the other short 2.75 mm double pointed needle to complete the set of three I think you have!!! I can bring it next time or whatever you like!!

I want that hot water bottle cover as well! Darn, this happens every time I read knitters' blogs. My to-do list just keeps on growing :)
